5 Corvette Accessories You Didn’t Know You Needed
When you’re making upgrades and modifications to your Corvette, it’s natural to think, “go big or go home.” This type of thinking is the driving force behind most Corvette mods; if you’re not making major upgrades to the body, nobody will notice.
Likewise, if your engine mod doesn’t hit a homerun, nobody will hear!
But not all Corvette modifications fall into this category. There are dozens of upgrades and do-it-yourself projects worth considering – even if they don’t bring that immediate “wow factor” to the table.
Consider the so-called minor or obscure Corvette mods. While they’re not obvious to everyone, they’ll certainly help your Vette in the long run:
- Engine performance, tuners & monitoring. From a small air intake to a programmable engine tuner, RPI Designs has a large variety of Corvette accessories that offer surprising performance and affordable value. Sometimes, it’s that “little extra” that makes all the difference. And with high-performance Corvette engines, getting optimal performance may require a small tweak to your engine’s output. Some of the most popular Corvette accessories we sell are engine performance modules, tuners, and other monitoring tools. Our selection includes some of the best-known brands in the industry – try one today.
- Detailed enhancements. Small, precise upgrades sometimes make the biggest impression. From interior components to exterior modifications, we carry all sorts of Corvette accessories you never knew about. Whether you’d like to upgrade your Corvette’s cockpit appearance, or add stylish flair to your car’s exterior profile, RPI Designs carries an incredible inventory of the finest aftermarket Corvette accessories and upgrade kits. And since you can install our Corvette parts yourself, you’ll save plenty of money in the long run!
- Custom painted parts. Nothing completes your Corvettes appearance quite like a color-coordinated component. Our inventory of painted parts (both exterior & interior) set the standard for performance, value, durability and style. What’s more, RPI Designs also sells a premium assortment of high quality carbon fiber components for the Corvette, including 5th, 6th and 7th generation models! Carbon fiber offers many advantages over plastic or other composite accessories – the material’s strength-to-weight ratio allows you to reduce the weight of your Corvette without sacrificing durability & quality!
And that’s just scratching the surface – with hundreds of accessories to choose from, RPI Designs can help with your next DIY Corvette project.
